Jackie Robinson’s feat was no small task. While his diamond skills proved worthy and, unlike the talents of dozens of contemporaries who couldn’t make it, translated seamlessly into the Major Leagues, Robinson was hand-picked as “the one” because of his combination of unyielding competitive desire and a calm demeanor in the face of the storm. At a crossroads that necessitated “tough sport” over “good sport,” Robinson performed despite widespread opposition – and did so with aplomb. This baseball is autographed by the history-making Hall of Famer. The clean and creamy unofficial orb bears “Wilson – Ted Williams Speed Ball” trademark stampings and Williams’ facsimile signature in his capacity as a member of Wilson’s advisory board. On a blank side panel, Robinson has signed in blue ink and inscribed “To Bob Peltz - a good sport – best of luck.” Graded 8.5 by PSA/DNA (Autograph Grade 9; Baseball Grade 7), this is among the most pristine (if not, the most flawless) of Robinson single-signed spheres in the hobby. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from PSA/DNA.
